Orange is the New Black

I have a secret. Don’t tell Green, but my new favorite color is Orange. I can’t believe it. After 20+ years of crushing on every shade of Green from Chartreuse to Emerald, I only have eyes for Orange. No, not that blinding Halloween Orange but the elevated, more sophisticated Burnt Orange. It all started with this oversized cardigan (literally one of three orange things I have in my wardrobe besides these mules and this satin Tibi Skirt). Now I can’t stay away from this amazing color! I am hooked. When Natalie from The Tiny Closet offered to send me a piece from her collection, I instantly new I wanted this dress and in came just in time for my trip to Tulum Mexico.

I had the time of my life in Tulum, Mexico. This Airbnb was one of the best places I’ve ever stayed on a trip. I love finding really cool places to stay and being in the thick of the culture when traveling. If you haven’t yet check out My Guide to Tulum Mexico, What I packed for Tulum, Mexico and my Day 1-2 Tulum Vlogs where I share how I almost died, the most instagrammable places in Tulum and a little reflexion on turning 34 this month.

What’s your favorite color?

    This dress was made for you! I pretty much love all the Tiny Closet pieces. Burnt orange is actually one of my favorite colors, yet I rarely ever wear the color. This post reminded me that I need to change that, lol. You look great!
